Occupational Safety and Health Week - Make Safety a Habit

Released on May 8, 2017

North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week is May 7 to 13, 2017.  Each year, Canada, the United States, and Mexico observe NAOSH week to promote and encourage employers and employees to be healthy and safe in the workplace and at home.

“Injury rates continue to drop in Saskatchewan, and last year 88 per cent of Saskatchewan employers had zero injuries,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said.  “We need to work together to keep this trend going.  Our job isn’t done until we have achieved zero workplace injuries and illnesses.”

The NAOSH theme for this year is Make Safety a Habit.  This will be reflected at luncheon presentations planned for Regina and Saskatoon.  Dan Comiskey, a former CFL player, is an expert on habit change.  His presentation looks at ways to improve safety issues in the workplace through leadership and habit change.

A committee of representatives from the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, Canadian Society of Safety Engineering, Saskatchewan Safety Council, Federal Government, and the Workers’ Compensation Board work together to promote and co-ordinate activities and events across Saskatchewan.

The Government of Saskatchewan is dedicated to Mission: Zero, an initiative that works toward zero injuries, zero fatalities, and zero suffering.
